The Last Word on the US Open

Carvell Wallace on greatness, Serena, and the US Open’s best menswear.

Kara Ross's passion for design evolved from her love of literature and art (she studied both at Georgetown). Her career took off when a stint at a pearl-distribution company led her to create a small collection. Her interest in gemstones broadened the palette and soon she was making one-off items for private clients. Now her distinctive bold pieces in materials like jet, rock crystal, and rose quartz have their own corner at Bergdorf Goodman. From top to bottom: White quartz and gold cuff, $5,300; rock-crystal and gold ring with blue topaz, $2,500; starfish bracelet, $25,000; rock-crystal and gold ring with diamonds, $2,500; necklace with pendant, $4,500. 212-872-8744.
